I have had this mask hanging in several homes for twenty five years.
Each time I have moved, it is again placed prominently in our main living space. Our decor is rustic Japanese, and it compliments the other art and furniture we have, which includes Buddhist statues, relics and paintings.
The mask represents layer upon layer of meaning for me. It encompasses all human emotions from frailty to unabashed determination. From abject sorrow to a piercing clarity. To me, each and every human condition is represented.  Amadea does not shy away from the grittier stuff of life in her work.
Just like Amadea herself, it is a gem to me.
